I felt the urge to watch a non-entertainment program from the 1950s, so I watched this.

For those interested in commercials, the sole commercial begins at 11:50 and ends around 13:30, though the product is plugged again shortly after that, and is also plugged at the beginning. Given that, at the time, a half-hour prime-time series usually ran about 25-26 minutes minus ads, the amount of advertising in this late-night series is a bit too much.

This episode aired at 11:00PM, at least in New York City, and was preceded by "Studio One", popular dramatic anthology series.

Subject: Transportation technology and policies
This two-on-one interview program includes an interesting discussion of new advanced trains, capable of making the New York to Los Angeles run in “one working day and two nights”, and New York to Boston or Washington in two hours and a half, thus competing effectively with air services. There is also quite a bit of discussion of the obstacles to progress, including backward management and groups of financiers. Interestingly, Chairman Young advocates reducing hours of work and increasing paid vacation, and also for ownership-management.
There is also a discussion of the financial troubles of the New York Central and Pennsylvania systems, which ended in one of the greatest industrial bankruptcies ever.
The last three minutes are taken up with the sponsor's message, with special emphasis on watches made for exchanging between bride and groom at their wedding, or husband and wife for their anniversary.
CBS end bumper reminds the viewer to tune in and watch the upcoming political conventions.
